From 11 to 13 June, Bilbao City Council and EUDEL is hosting the Conference of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR), which will bring together 500 mayors, regional and local leaders, European institutions and international organizations. The main focus will be put on how equality, diversity and inclusion can flourish at the local level and what the role of European cities and regions is in this process. The program includes workshops and side-visits covering several topics concerning inclusion.

The 2018 CEMR Conference on equality, diversity and inclusion is the place to discover how to build communities that value everyone, communities that unleash the full potential of their population. The programme of 33 sessions, round tables and parallel workshops, will be the opportunity for European municipalities to share best practices. Among the topics at hand, that will be discussed are human rights, public management and services, employment, intersectional discrimination, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the European Charter for Equality of Women and Men in Local Life.
